Development Forum Call Out

We are looking to bring together a group of unique, creative and committed individuals to volunteer for our development forum, to guide and shape the programme for our annual conference.

This Way Up is the annual UK film exhibition innovation conference that promises to inspire and enlighten, provoke and challenge.

With audience behaviour changing at an accelerating rate, it’s more crucial of This Way Up to provide a space where film exhibitors come together to discuss the pressing issues, to hear about new models, new thinking and new opportunities and to meet each other to share our experiences.

The event is organised and produced by Film Hub North and Film Hub Scotland and is a key part of the BFI Film Audience Network’s Member Support and Development programme. The programme is also supported by significant input from the other Hubs within the FAN and key partners of the network.

Having visited Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and Hull in previous years, 2018 sees This Way Up go to Liverpool.


We are putting together a group of up to 10 people to help us shape the content, format, aims and ambitions of This Way Up 2018 (and beyond).

We’re looking for curious, imaginative, inspiring, playful and engaged individuals from a range of backgrounds and with a range of specialisms. We’re looking for people with a passion; whether they be long-term professionals or volunteers doing it in their spare time. We are hoping for genuine, insightful, critical but constructive feedback from you and will be sharing information that is rough, raw, potentially unstructured or in early drafts so ask that this is kept in strictest confidence.
